Unlocking the potential of
a digitally connected audience

Our core capability is producing scalable sales that deliver multi-year recurring revenue, and proprietary technology that has become a SAAS service for our partners.

Only a very small percentage of the millions of books in publication are discoverable. Authors need to connect with readers. Consumers want books they’ll love.

The Solution

Content discoverability and scales using scalable marketing and proprietary tech tools.

What our publishing partners are saying

Our partnership with Open Road has dramatically increased the sales of a wide range of our backlist titles. The increased revenue for both Grove and the authors is great—but even more exciting is that this initiative is helping introduce these worthy books to new readers.
